Trial date set for man accused of murdering wife, son

Wednesday, 13 November 2013 12:33 Published in Local News

JACKSON, Mo. (AP) - A judge has set a September trial date for George Joseph, a Cape Girardeau businessman accused of killing his wife and 18-year-old son.

The Southeast Missourian reports that Cape Girardeau County Judge Benjamin Lewis on Tuesday scheduled the first-degree murder trial for the week of Sept. 15, with jury selection to begin Sept. 11.

The jury will be picked in Cole County in mid-Missouri and brought to Cape Girardeau County for the trial. Joseph's attorney, Bryan Greaser, had requested a change of venue.

Mary Joseph and the couple's son, Matthew, were shot to death on May 30 at the family's home. Joseph, who is 48, was treated for a gunshot wound to the head. He recovered.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri plans to use a $1 million gift to fund academic scholarships for military veterans.

The university announced Wednesday that it received the estate commitment from donors who wanted to remain anonymous. The donors did not attend the university but want the gift to honor Col. Dwight Schannep, a native of Versailles who fought in World War II for almost the entire conflict. Schannep died in a military plane crash shortly after the war.

Missouri officials say in a news release that the donors cited the university's full-service Veterans Center, its academic reputation - particularly its journalism schools - and Midwestern values.

 

Triplets of Jacque Waller adopted by aunt

Wednesday, 13 November 2013 12:28 Published in Local News

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - The triplets of Jacque Waller have been officially adopted by Waller's sister and brother-in-law.

Bob and Cheryl Brenneke have been legal guardians of the now 8-year-old children since Waller went missing in the summer of 2011, soon after she and her estranged husband, Clay, met with an attorney in Jackson, Mo., to finalize divorce plans.

Clay Waller, the father of the triplets, led authorities to her body earlier this year on a Mississippi River island near Cape Girardeau. He is now serving a 20-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to second-degree murder.

KFVS-TV reports that the Brenneke's adoption of Maddox, Avery and Addison became official on Tuesday.
